About the Band


The Bergamot formed in 2010 in South Bend, Indiana and consists of Jillian Speece (vocals/cajón) and Nathaniel Paul Hoff (vocals/guitar/keyboard). The duo is known for their songwriting, uplifting music and entertaining shows. Their sound is often compared to Of Monsters and Men, Benjamin Gibbard and Mac Demarco. In 2017 The Bergamot won the Project Aloft Star competition and People Magazine said they were the,“hottest emerging music talent” while EARMILK wrote that, “The Bergamot is the perfect blend.”

The duo has opened up for X-Ambassadors, Gavin Degraw, Bea Miller,Young The Giant and in 2019 they got invited to open for OneRepublic.

The Bergamot has released 7 albums and 1 EP while constantly touring across North America and Europe. Hoff and Speece started writing together in 2003 after their high-school art teacher Kitty Gunty invited them to write a song to submit to Project XL, an Indiana state-wide arts and songwriting competition. And in the spring of 2004 the duo’s song “Seasons Change” was accepted as a top 10 finalist.

Since their early years together The Bergamot has released Smile EP (2010), Haven (2011), Live at The Morris (2017), A South Shore Christmas (Live at The Acorn, Three Oaks, 2019) and 4 studio albums Static Flowers (2012), Tones (2016), Mayflies (2019) and Far Out (2022). The duo set out on January 2nd, 2016 from New York City to launch “The Unity Collective USA Tour.”

While on The Unity Collective tour Hoff and Speece would perform in all 50 states while spreading a message of unity and peace to all Americans during a tumultuous 2016 election period. Two months before the conclusion of The Unity Collective tour The Bergamot would get a lucky break as their story got picked up by NBC Washington Channel 4 "Driving for Unity"and spread their message further into the fabric of America. At the end of this 8 month tour they would go on to released the dreamy anthem P.D.R. This single was discovered by Matt Wiggins (Adele, U2, Florence and the Machine) and achieved rave reviews being called "The hottest emerging music talent" (People) and "a gorgeous sound" (Daily Mirror).

Fans have discovered the band through an unbelievable series of music videos released to promote the new album "Mayflies". The videos have been heralded by music critics as "Lush" (PARADE) and "The Perfect Blend" (EARMILK). These groundbreaking videos have brought light to difficult topics and continued to build upon the band's momentum from "P.D.R.". The videos have garnered over 150k views on YouTube.

Three years after dropping Mayflies The Bergamot finished their first feature length documentary “State of the Unity” (2022).

In February 2022 “State of the Unity” would be accepted into the Sedona International Film Festival and win the “Marion Herrman Excellence in Filmmaking Award” and a few days later it would win “Best Feature Documentary” by Art Film Awards and get an invitation to the Richmond International Film Festival.
